The air con receiver dryer is an important component as it works with all other parts to produce cold air. It functions by temporarily storing refrigerant when cool air isn’t required and filters debris and moisture from the system.
Used only in cars which contain expansion valves, an air conditioning receiver dryer looks like a small metal can with an inlet and outlet. The component receives debris and particles, removing these from the airflow, and absorbs any water trapped inside the vehicle using a moisture absorbing material, called desiccant, to output clean airflow throughout the vehicle. The part can get clogged by debris or, if there is an excess of water (moisture) in the vehicle’s system where the receiver dryer will need to be replaced.
